The goal of the Open Door MCC community is to provide a welcoming and affirming spiritual home to all of God’s children across sexuality and gender identity through social justice activity, community building, and bible study so that we know our divine worth, deepen our relationship to self, other, and God, and share our peace with the world.
We believe in the bible's message that God loves us all unconditionally, just as we are.
We celebrate the knowledge that we can be Christian and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender.
We believe that the life and teachings of Jesus are relevant in today's world and help us live with hope and dignity during uncertain times and in an unjust world.
It is through the witness and ministry of Jesus Christ that we find healing, comfort, and challenge.
Gospel: We are each deeply beloved by God as we are.
Namaste: We believe that each of us embodies and reflects the presence of God.
Ephphatha: We commit to opening doors to one another across our differences.
Pentecost: We affirm a variety of spiritual paths and expressions.
Emmanuel: We understand that we must act on these truths to make change in the world.
MCC was founded in 1968 in response to the need for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and our allies to gather for worship as fully welcome and celebrated people of faith.
We meet regularly on Sunday mornings for fellowship, discussion, praise, and communion. E-mail Rev. Wendy Hamilton at [email protected] or call 301-916-5777. Peace.
